I'd like to hear some raw tracks (no EQ) that you like with the KM184.

Yes the 184 and the U87ai both seem garner a vast variance of detractors to fans. Then couple that to the mystique that tends to follow the older 87's and 84"s and the controversy is well fueled . I think specific source may have as much or more to with it as anything else in the chain.

Also the problem that the vintage pieces individually also seem to also vary widely in performance as well, that and they are so hard to come by, that comparing them is for practical reasons is pretty much a "non starter" for people looking to actually purchase.
